Default Creating a blog

Has anyone here started, and made a success of writing a blog? I want to get into Beta reading books by my favorite author. I know to do this I'll need a professional blog where I can post reviews of her books and others I read. I've found a couple of free e-books on blogging that I can put on my Kindle but I'd also like to read some first-hand accounts. I'm not looking to make a lot of money from it but a little bit extra would come in handy. If you don't care to answer here please send me a private message. Thanks in advance.

Blog. Get Word Press free off the internet and learn it. It is almost as easy as sending E mail to use the software.

Thanks Durham. That was the closure recommended the most so I'll look into it.

Good luck with your blog! I understand WordPress has a learning curve, but it is good software. Blogger works pretty well, but it has been a while since I have used my account. It is much easier to set up a blog than to get in there and actually blog :/

I switched from WordPress to Blogger awhile back. I decided to look at going back to WordPress and found it to be unwieldy.

In looking at alternatives, I found tumblr duplicate everything I do on blogger over there to expand my audience.

I have had a few blogger blogs, but never made any money. I found that Word Press was difficult to use also, don't stop doing what you enjoy.
